I feel like I haven’t been able to do much in planning our wedding because things have been revolving around selling the house and moving. I’ve wanted to get the photographer and DJ researched and booked soon just because I know how fast things get booked up well in advance. (Note: I haven’t booked anything yet…oops?)

Photographer: GAUPERphoto. One of my friends used them for their wedding last year and absolutely loved them. I checked out their website when their proofs came in and just absolutely loved their style and the way the photos just popped. They have professionalism to them, but are fun and creative, and you won’t see the same thing over and over again.

DJ Services: Mike Staff Productions. It seems like they are the people to have and probably the most well known throughout the Detroit area. I know of at least a few couples who used them for their wedding and loved how the contract and their DJ that they picked. The company sits you down and lets you watch the profiles of the DJ’s that are picked out depending on what you’re looking for. One of the things that I love is that in case your DJ has some kind of emergency, the company sends out a back up one no matter what.

Photo booth: Shutterbooth. Ever since my uncle had a photo booth at one of his birthday celebrations, I’ve loved the idea in capturing people’s crazy personalities in a unique way. I did some searching and came across two different photo booth companies, both of which offer some great package pricing. One of the things that I definitely want is the option for a scrapbook. For each strip of photos that comes out for the guests, a duplicate one comes out that the worker takes and puts it into a scrapbook, thus becoming your little guestbook!
